Nope, the shaft wasn't marred whatsoever. Polyvars are build like a tank. From what I've read they were very high quality scopes. I'm quite lucky that all the prisms are in excellent condition, all the objectives, filters, cubes, Nomarski etc. Looks like the mirror survived falling off too and didn'...

Removing a knob
